Luke and Jaz didn't start eating solids until 13 months. By then they could really eat whatever we were eating, so it was really easy. They still aren't big eaters most days, though every once in a while they surprise me. They still nurse ALL the time, and I wonder if they would nurse less if they were eating more. . . They were good-sized at birth (6-4 and 8-7 at 38 weeks), but have since dropped down on the growth charts. Jaz is only in the 10th% for weight now. But, they are healthy and happy, and meeting milestones, etc. (they don't look too skinny, IMO).
BTW, they were sitting unassisted at five months, had their first teeth by six months, were reaching and all that, drooling over our dinners, but still didn't actually want to EAT the food. They just thought it was fun to play with.
Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 5, 6, 8, 9, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.
